On March 28, Japanese industry self-regulation of Standards and white list management system seminar held in Beijing. North Hata, Minoru Japanese fashion apparel Industry Association Compliance Committee Chairman at the seminar revealed that Japan officially announced textiles do not use the specific azo dyes self-regulatory standards on March 29, since the Japanese media widely reported by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry has also officially launched the legislative process in the near future, the Japanese textile industry self-regulation standards will be raised for the law to enforce.

Recently, product safety has been the general concern of consumers. Textile products dyed using dyes, dye intermediates of aromatic amines as a part of many countries as unsafe substances, hundreds of specific azo dyes containing such substances have been included in the ranks of the Prohibition of the Use. Japanese fiber industry alliance to keep the textile safety standards in line with international standards of textiles is not self-regulation of the use of certain azo dyes, and textiles to Japan specific azo dye detection.

Based on statistical estimates of the testing organization, a clothing azo dyes to detect the average cost of 800-1000 yuan, a batch of testing costs may be as high as tens of thousands or even thousands of dollars. Enterprises around the world, especially towards Japan exports more self-discipline imposed on Japan by the textile industry standards to prepare, make the cost of exports increased.

Japanese textile standard of self-regulation of the use of certain azo dyes brewing for more than two. China Textile Industry Association and the Japanese side in order to help Chinese textile export enterprises to better respond to repeated consultations, and finally reach a consensus, through the cooperation of both sides, white list management system, the implementation of the the whitelist qualification for the Japanese market. According to the Information Department of Statistics of China Textile Industry Federation Zhang Xicheng introduced, the white list management system is divided into the white list certification and registration system of the white list. Chinese enterprises to obtain a white list of qualifications or products in the production and processing with a white list qualified products exported to Japan without specific azo dyes were detected.

According to Zhang Xicheng, disable the limit of the aromatic amines has become a basic environmental standards, industry self-regulation standards in Japan involving 22 kinds of specific aromatic amines. In China, as early as 2003 on the launch of the “National safety technical code for textile products GB18401-2003″ and 200 511 from the date of enforcement of textile sales in China are required to implement the standard. Chinese GB18401-2003 involving 23 kinds of specific aromatic amines, industry self-regulation standards than Japan 4 – dimethylaniline and 2,6 – dimethylaniline 2, to reduce a 4 – aminoazobenzene. Limited to disable the aromatic amines 4 – aminoazobenzene Japanese industry self-regulation standards, which in Chinese GB18401-2003 qualifies, but in the GB18401-2010. From the feedback of the European market, 4 – aminoazobenzene is to find out more of the prohibited substances. So, although China’s GB18401 textiles security requirements than the Japanese domestic textile standards are more stringent, but the Japanese export enterprises still need to attach great importance to the whitelist qualification export products to the Japanese market for textiles security requirements.

After the start of the declaration of the “white list of qualifications, the domestic printing and dyeing enterprise response is positive. At present, 24 enterprises have obtained the qualification certificates of the white list. Lutai Textile Co., Ltd. R & D center of Ni love red, enterprises in the last four mid-reporting “white list of qualifications and promptly send the relevant materials,” Japan is the the Lutai attaches great importance to foreign trade market ‘whitelist qualification’ help the enterprise’s long-term development. “she said.

In the past, Japan’s Ito-Yokado, Aeon and other large retailers have been in accordance with the Japanese industry self-regulation standards required to complete the amendment of the procurement contract, simply because a sudden earthquake, had to be postponed. At present, individual enterprises has received request of the importer to provide textiles excluding disable the notification of the aromatic amines proved.
